The Southern Islands series is a family of Radeon GPUs developed by AMD.[1] AMD builds Southern Islands series graphics chips based on the 28 nm manufacturing process at TSMC.[2] AMD gave a preview of the new design at the AMD Fusion Development Summit (June 13–16, 2011).[3] On July 21, 2011, the company confirmed that it had working silicon in-house and it planned to release the first cards before the end of that year,[4] the primary constraint being the stability of the 28 nm process at TSMC.[5] The primary competitor of Southern Islands, Nvidia's GeForce 600 Series (also manufactured at TSMC), also shipped during Q1 2012, largely due to the immaturity of the 28 nm process.[clarification needed][6]

Release[edit]

See chart below.

Architecture[edit]

This article is about all products under the Radeon HD 7000 Series brand. Graphics Core Next was introduces with the Radeon HD 7000 Series.

Multi-monitor support[edit]

Main article: AMD Eyefinity

The AMD Eyefinity-branded on-die display controllers were introduces in in September 2009 in the Radeon HD 5000 Series and have been present in all products since.[7]

Video acceleration[edit]

Both Unified Video Decoder (UVD) and Video Codec Engine (VCE) are present on the dies of all products and supported by AMD Catalyst and by the free and open-source graphics device driver#ATI/AMD.

Products[edit]

The 28 nm product line is divided in three dies (Tahiti, Pitcairn, and Cape Verde), each one roughly double in shader units compared to its small brethren (32, 20, and respectively 10 GCN compute units). While this gives roughly a doubling of single-precision floating point, there is however a significant departure in double-precision compute power. Tahiti has a maximum ¼ double precision throughput relative to its single precision throughput, while the other two smaller consumer dies can only achieve a 1/16 ratio.[8] While each bigger die has two additional memory controllers widening its bus by 128 bits, Pitcairn however has the same front-end dual tesselator units as Tahiti giving it similar performance to its larger brethren in DX11 tessellation benchmarks.[8]

Radeon HD 7900[edit]

Codenamed Tahiti, the Radeon HD 7900 series was announced on December 22, 2011. Products include the Radeon 7970 GHz Edition, Radeon HD 7970 and Radeon HD 7950. The Radeon HD 7970 features 2048 usable stream cores, whereas the Radeon HD 7950 has 1792 usable stream cores, as 256 out of the 2048 cores are disabled during product binning which detects defective areas of a chip. The cards are the first products to take advantage of AMD's new "Graphics Core Next" compute architecture. Both cards are equipped with 3 GB GDDR5 memory and manufactured on TSMC's 28 nm process. The Tahiti GPU is also used in the Radeon HD 7870 XT, released November 19, 2012. In this case one quarter of the stream processors are disabled, giving 1536 usable cores. Additionally, the memory interface is downgraded from 384-bit to 256-bit, along with a memory size reduction from 3 GB to 2 GB.

Radeon HD 7800[edit]

Codenamed Pitcairn, the Radeon HD 7800 series was formally unveiled on March 5, 2012, with retail availability from March 19, 2012. Products include the Radeon HD 7870 and Radeon HD 7850. The Radeon HD 7870 features 1280 usable stream cores, whereas the Radeon HD 7850 has 1024 usable stream cores. Both cards are equipped with 2 GB GDDR5 memory and manufactured on TSMC's 28 nm process.[9]

Radeon HD 7700[edit]

Codenamed Cape Verde, the Radeon HD 7700 series was released on February 15, 2012. Products include the Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition and Radeon HD 7750. The Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition features 640 stream cores based on the GCN architecture, whereas the Radeon HD 7750 has only 512 usable stream cores. Both cards are equipped with 1 GB GDDR5 memory and manufactured in 28 nm. On March 22, 2013 another card, Radeon HD 7790, was introduced in this series. This card is based on the Bonaire architecture, featuring 896 stream cores based on GCN 1.1 technology, an incremental update of GCN.

Chipset table[edit]

Southern Islands (HD 7xxx) Series[edit]

  • All models up to including HD 76xx are based on VLIW5 ISA with support for DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.2, OpenCL 1.2 without support for Mantle
  • HD 77xx-79xx are based on GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture with support for DirectX 11.2, OpenGL 4.2, OpenCL 1.2 and Mantle
  • HD 7790 is designed more like the 7800/7900 models rather than the rest 7700 models, providing 2 primitives per clock instead of 1[10]
  • Bonaire is in the Caribbean Sea, Malta is in the Mediterranean Sea these parts are reverse rebranded out of the Sea Island Series
